What a fantastic surprise as we were walking to find this grotto. We found it walking up the street. We also saw these in Amalfi. So many surprises. Positano is beautiful.

Saw this a few times during our drive up and down the coast. Didn't need a stop as wasn't that great a sight to see. But if walking past a few minutes should be enough . There's so much else to see !

If you are in Positano, this is a quaint little stone diorama of the town of Positano. Not something I would go out of my way to see, but if you are walking through the town, especially with kids, it is an interesting attraction.

A quick stop as you are walking up or down from the beach. Interesting homes carved in the side of the wall. Nice to look at as you are walking.

It's a grotto. Which is kind of like a cave, but with less effort. And it's got some little do-dah's in it. And the little orange local Positano busses stop there on their way through the town. Occasionally they're on time. More often than not, they're early. Or late. In Italy, bus timetables, like road rules, are more an aspiration... More

About half way up, or down, Positano is this little grotto. It does not take long to see but it is worth seeing. We were told that during the Christmas holidays that they put a little nativity scene in here. I am sure it is really cute since there are already little houses/scenes in here already.

This is inside a very small cave. Yes the light that comes in and makes the water blue is beautiful, however, it is merely that, a cave with a small portion of blue water. It is 5 euro pp which is relatively inexpensive compared to some tourist attractions, and it only takes 20 minutes to see. The boat workers seemed... More
